Vero Beach, FL–DIpartner, the training and curriculum development
company led by industry veteran Todd Adams, is collaborating wIth Vancouver integrator la scala Integrated Media to develop in-house training manuals. The goal of the project is to assist la scala in maintaining consistent, high installation standards for its products in the residential integration industry.
Initially, the two companies are collaborating on a structured cabling manual that describes installation techniques that comply with industry and la scalas standards. We want to provide an excellent and convenient reference for installers to follow for each and every project contracted by la scala, said Todd B. Adams, CEO of DIpartner.
DIpartner, founded in 2002, maintains offices in Florida and North Carolina. It has previously presented training in design and project management to la scala employees.
We are committed to our employees and to high standards. Ongoing training and development is a non-negotiable for us,” said la scala president Marilyn Sanford. “DIpartner brings deep industry knowledge with a strong communications skill set providing a refreshing, credible and relevant partnership to our employee commitment.
la scala is a leader in the development of custom and pre-engineered home cinema solutions for residents of metro Vancouver, the lower mainland, BC, and Alberta. The company, which has been in operation since 1989, also offers a broad range of other integrated electronics custom solutions for homes, including home control, lighting, computer networking and communications, distributed music systems, and home theater design accessories.
In other news, CEDIA Asia Pacific has scheduled four separate weeks of training from DIpartner, covering home electronic integrated systems.
In the Design workshop, which is scheduled for the Spring of 2008, Adams will focus on designing home integration systems — structured cabling, whole-house audio/video, home theater, lighting, HVAC, and security. Whether working for one of the specialized firms that install and service only one or two home technologies (home theater, for example), or for a broad-based systems integrator that supplies total integration solutions, the knowledge in this course, confirmed by the CEDIA Certification (members only), will assure multiple career opportunities in an expanding technological field.
